Ben Harper has unveiled his new album 'Winter Is For Lovers' and in many ways his entire musical life has culminated in this moment.

The solo recording, which features just Harper and his Monteleone lap steel guitar, is a 15-song work of original instrumental compositions imagined as a symphony. Harper has pushed musical boundaries since his 1994 debut and his lap steel guitar has played a tremendous role in his distinct sound throughout his career. But he’s never made an album that so purely distills his reverence for the instrument, and his mastery of it. Starting today fans can order 'Winter Is For Lovers' from a limited 2000-piece pressing of the album on 180g vinyl, autographed, numbered and hand stamped.

Orders will be fulfilled this week. The release date for the standard vinyl and digital version will be announced later this fall.
